A win over Arsenal, their bitterest foes in next month's derby might be just about enough to save Jol his job. Since the Gunners are firmly in the Spurs sights to vault over them to fourth spot this appears to be a reasonable yardstick. Graham Roberts, the former Spurs captain thinks so >>
However it is not matches against the existing big four that will make or break Jol's future, it is winning matches in between against clubs that the Spurs should easily coast over. Meanwhile Darren Bent's overpriced transfer has become a bone of contention between Jol and director of football operations, Daniel Comolli. Similar to Sheva being an albatross around Jose Mourinho's neck after his transfer was pushed through by Roman Abramovich.
